In a display of cross-functional teamwork, several internal teams at JAS worked closely to execute a seamless transportation operation. The collaborative effort aimed to transport a large number of Lithium-Ion Batteries (UN 3480, Class 9) from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to Frankfurt Airport (FRA), supporting a leading European Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) producing electric vehicles (EV).
The automotive landscape is transitioning towards sustainable solutions, with electric vehicles leading the way. However, sourcing the necessary components, such as Lithium-Ion Batteries, often poses significant logistical challenges due to their hazardous nature, requiring compliance with stringent regulations and safety protocols. A leading OEM in Europe required a substantial shipment of batteries from the US to support its EV production. Blue World Atlantic charter flight operations presented an opportunity to avoid relying on a market yielding minimal results with minimum quantities per flight.
Recognizing the urgency and importance of the situation, the JAS teams quickly created a plan. The batteries were carefully packed, labeled, and documented in accordance with local and global regulations. Additionally, a plan using JAS' existing Blue World Atlantic weekly charter was organized, allowing for direct transportation and minimizing the risk associated with intermediate stops.
After taking over the project as airlines simultaneously announced embargoes on cargo containing Lithium-Ion Batteries, the team successfully transported the Lithium-Ion Batteries on JAS Blue World Atlantic weekly charter, allowing the customer's supply chain to remain uninterrupted.
JAS has numerous in-house experts in a wide range of fields required for the transportation of various commodities and goods. An essential area of expertise is managing consignments containing hazardous materials.
Caroline Söderholm and Christina Jopengrip, two highly experienced forwarders at JAS Sweden, specialize in dangerous goods for air freight and assist our clients in making the right decisions when shipping these commodities.
They spoke with us about their experiences and important considerations regarding booking and shipping dangerous goods by air.
Christina: For the past eight years, I have worked as an import and export specialist for Air, Sea, and Rail shipments at our office in Sundsvall.
Caroline: I have worked as an Air Export Specialist at our Arlanda/Stockholm office since 2017. I have been in the forwarding industry since 2005, handling import and export air consignments.
Dangerous Goods is the term used for substances and objects that, if not handled properly during transport, can cause harm to people, the environment, or property.
The classification of dangerous goods is based on criteria outlined in the UN model regulations. These goods are then divided into different classes depending on their nature and level of danger.
Caroline: You have to be approved for an IATA DGR course (7.3 Function: Personnel Responsible for Processing or Accepting Dangerous Goods Consignments), where there is a requirement that you attend it every two years to be up to date with the latest rules and regulations.
Christina: It is good to have attended stage 1 and 2 courses for Lithium batteries.
There are a lot more batteries (for electric cars, hybrid cars, electric bicycles, laptops, mobile phones, cameras, etc.) compared to previously. And many of them are transported by air, so the rules have become much stricter. Did you know, for example, that there is a difference between sending only batteries, batteries packed with equipment, and batteries packed in equipment?
Caroline: We collaborate with our dangerous goods partner, Dangerous Goods Management (DGM), to assist and advise our clients on how to properly package their goods in accordance with current regulations, as well as identifying necessary documentation.
Christiana: Compliance with IATA's Dangerous Goods Regulation (DGR) is mandatory for air shipments of dangerous goods. This includes following strict guidelines for classification, marking, packaging, labeling, and documentation of hazardous shipments. Additionally, certain states or airlines may have specific restrictions or rules that must be followed. In other words, handling hazardous goods is more complex than handling non-hazardous goods.
Christiana: As the shipper/supplier is always ultimately responsible for their goods, we must be clear about what can and cannot be shipped and how.
Caroline: When booking a shipment that includes dangerous goods, the customer must provide a "Shippers Declaration for Dangerous Goods" for air transport. This declaration helps us determine the correct pricing and routing based on how the goods are packaged. It's important to note that different rules apply for flights that use passenger aircraft versus freighters, which are known as Cargo Aircraft Only.
Caroline: The properties of dangerous goods are so hazardous that they can jeopardize the aircraft itself and even the safety of individuals on board an aircraft. Some goods may be unable to endure the effects of turbulence and high pressure, making it necessary to pack them in specially approved containers designed for dangerous goods.
Christiana: Some examples of dangerous goods you may not know are nail polish, hair spray and dry shampoo, alcohol, matches/lighters, thermometers, backpacks with built-in chargers, and E-cigarettes…the list goes on.
We collaborate with partners such as DGM to provide guidance on how to ship small quantities of hazardous items as limited or excepted quantities instead of fully regulated dangerous goods. This allows for shipping with exceptions and reduces the labeling and packaging requirements, making it a more cost-effective option than shipping fully regulated dangerous goods.
Caroline: It's worth considering that our smartphones and tablets contain a built-in Lithium battery, which makes them sensitive items. Consequently, flight attendants typically instruct passengers to notify them if such items are dropped between the seats. Dropping a lithium battery on a hard surface may cause the particles to divide and potentially ignite a fire that is incredibly difficult to extinguish. In the end, though, it is the Pilot who ultimately decides which cargo is allowed on their flight.
Thank you for sharing with us today! It has been very interesting and given us plenty to consider when sending dangerous goods by airfreight.

The JAS Chile and JAS France teams recently completed the secure transport of an aircraft engine from France to Santiago, Chile.
Moving the engine was a complex operation due to its size and weight. However, the JAS Chile was able to meet every challenge it faced to guarantee the engine’s safe passage. The aircraft engine weighs 5,955 kilograms and measures 430x257x265/185x155x55 cm.
The engine was picked up and placed on a truck on July 26th. From there, it was transported to Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG) in Paris, France for customs clearance and documentation. There, the engine sat in the carriers’ warehouse from July 26- July 30 where it awaited further transport. On July 30, the engine was placed on a cargo flight from Charles De Gaulle Airport to Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport (AMS). From there, the engine completed its final leg of the journey traveling to Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCL) in Santiago, Chile where it safely arrived mid-day.
About JAS Chile
JAS Chile, headquartered in Santiago, is proud to have served the local market for over 25 years. Our people are intimately familiar with the process of efficiently moving cargo throughout the world. We are hereto help you navigate the logistical maze of carrier relationships, customs, risk management, and regulatory challenges, along with the hundreds of other issues that companies face when seeking to move goods by air, sea, or land.
Making its debut in Latin America in mid-April, the Airbus A220 created quite a stir. Prospective airline customers were drawn to the A220 as a cost-efficient solution.
The allure of the Airbus A220 hit the new marketplace as part of a planned tour of the region.
Owned by SWISS International Airlines, the A220 used for the expedition had planned stops in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. The logistics management expertise of the JAS Brazil team was required for the A220’s inaugural stop in Brazil.
Team members conducted a record operation with the Federal Revenue. In just three hours, the team obtained the required documentation, licenses, and organization of landings for demonstration. JAS Brazil also was responsible for coordinating the A220’s departure from Brazil to its next stop in Miami, Fla. The team is responsible for coordinating the re-export of the Airbus A220 following its departure until its return to its storage yard.
It's not difficult to see why airlines in Latin America are interested in the Airbus A220. It is the only aircraft built for the 100 to 150-seat market. Additionally, it brings together Pratt & Whitney’s state-of-the-art aerodynamics, composite materials, and turbofan engines.
The A220 features a 50 percent noise footprint reduction and lower fuel burn per seat compared to the previous generation aircraft. Another attractive quality is the 50 percent lower nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions than industry standards currently require.
Currently, the A220 is Airbus’ main player for regional operations, with the possibility of a jet for long-haul routes. JAS Brazil is pleased to be a part of this unparalleled introduction into the Latin American marketplace and looks forward to furthering collaboration with Airbus.
From city centers to rugged mountaintops in the Vancouver wilderness, there is no transport job too complicated for JAS Canada’s team to achieve. Case in point: the recent delivery of an RFS antenna shipped from France to a remote location near Williams Lake, British Columbia. The antenna was added to an existing communications tower to help boost telecommunication services in this remote B.C. town.
Anna Isaj, from the JAS Forwarding Worldwide Insurance and Claims department, said this one was of the most challenging requests for transport she has handled for this client in her 10 years of working with them. What made the process so difficult was securing a flat rack container, OOG Dept. approval, and shipping container to move the antenna from its manufacturer in France to its destination in Williams Lake, B.C.
“The current export market conditions lead to several weeks’ waiting time between the booking confirmation and the estimated time of departure,” said Isaj. “A shortage of equipment and congestion at the ports have made every day very challenging for the team.”
The port at Le Havre, France, where the antenna was scheduled to depart from, continues to experience backlogs due to productivity-related issues. Some container lines are bypassing this key French port to avoid the hassle, which is making it difficult for logistics managers to ship products on tight deadlines. Working around these issues requires creativity and connections to top carriers. JAS Canada’s team was up for the challenge.
Isaj and her team received the dimensions of the antenna from their client. It weighed 1,750kg, dims, with dimensions of 500x240x282cm. They determined the safest way to transport the aerial transmitter from the factory in France to the shipping port was using a combination of a step-deck trailer outfitted with a flat rack container. Once the container arrived at the port, it could be loaded directly onto the ocean freighter.
The JAS France team assisted with securing the transport and shipping container for the move. It took their team six weeks to locate and procure a flat rack container. With shipping ports still backed up from the height of the global pandemic, shippers often must wait for the shipping containers needed.
The team approached all the ocean lines in its pursuit to get the antenna shipped by the deadline. All but one responded they had no bookings available due to space and equipment constraints. One ocean line said it could accommodate shipping but could not guarantee arrival at the Port of Vancouver by the required time of arrival.
Identifying the delay and providing a new estimated time of departure to the client was the next crucial step in the process. Since the delay in receiving the antenna did not cause the telecom’s customers to be without service, the client agreed to the new timeline. “As long as the shipment was delivered in good order, the delay was accepted by the customer,” said Isaj.
Once aboard the vessel, it took 46 days transit time for the antenna to arrive at the Port of Vancouver from the port at Le Havre, France.
Upon arrival at the Port of Vancouver, the shipment required clearance from customs. Following approval from Canadian Customs, the oversize microwave antenna was unloaded from the flat rack container. JAS Canada arranged the delivery to the remote location in Williams Lake on a step-deck trailer. The JAS Canada team also secured a crane that was required to unload the antenna from the step-deck trailer. Getting the crane to the remote location was another challenge for her team, Isaj said.
“This was quite challenging; however, it was successfully done by our team. The amount of endless effort put forth by both the JAS France and JAS Canada teams to complete the door-to-door delivery of this oversize shipment was incredible.”
There is no such thing as mission impossible for JAS Brazil. Recently tasked with moving 105 tons of raw materials to Brazil on a tight deadline, the team faced several obstacles to completing their task.
One of the most pressing issues involved a backlog in Miami for products shipping to Latin American ports. Market overload prevents cargo and carriers from departing swiftly. They must wait their turn for clearance. The JAS Air Product division immediately went to the drawing board to design a solution for this cargo conundrum. Part of the proposed resolution included reducing the 105 tons of raw material into smaller lots. The team set aside thirty tons of allocated capacity to get the product moving for the production line.
Problem solved? Not so fast. Once the charter solutions came in, the JAS Brazil team learned there were not even a handful of options available. They had focused on two 767 aircraft to move the main portion of the freight to Brazil. During the booking process, the team discovered one of the aircraft no longer was available due to crew scheduling issues. The new problem facing the team: figuring out how to move 50 tons of payload with only one 767 at their disposal.
With the delivery schedule in jeopardy, the team again reached out to other carriers. They secured a 747 as a viable option. The problem they now faced was the 747 would not be available until two days after the original delivery deadline. It still was a better option than waiting for the second 767 in their original plan, which would not arrive until more than a week after the deadline.
JAS Brazil’s team jumped into action with a round of late-evening communications to obtain the green light from the customer to use the 747. By early morning, they had reached an agreement with the customer and set the gears in motion. Trucks began rolling from the pickup location in Oklahoma to Miami. Using the power of their commercial capacity, combined with the charter solution, JAS Brazil kept their customer’s production line running.
JAS Aerospace Mexico, in coordination with JAS Peru and JAS Miami, completed a successful transport from the Jorge Chavez Airport to the Queretaro International Airport. The shipment was completed on May 24 and included a CFM56-5B4/3 standard airplane engine. The CFM56-5B4/3 is the world’s best-selling jet engine and the exclusive engine for Boeing Next-Generation single-aisle airliners.
It is the third engine JAS Aerospace Mexico has transported in 2021. However, it is the first time they handled this kind of sensitive cargo by air. On February 15, the company shipped the first motor. JAS Aerospace moved a second engine on March 1.
Moving a CFM56-5B4/3 engine is a delicate operation due to its size and fragility. The JAS Peru logistics team met every challenge it faced to guarantee the engine’s safe passage. The engine weighs 4,650 kilograms and is 3.99 meters long, 2.50 meters wide, and 2.25 meters tall. Its shape made it difficult to fit in a standard shipping container. The team used an engine stand to secure it in place during the flight. Engine stands must be lightweight enough to prevent exceeding cargo weight limits for air transport.
There are no direct flights from Peru to Mexico, which posed a final test in moving the CFM56-5B4/3 engine for the JAS Peru team. Collaborating with the logistics teams at JAS Miami and JAS Aerospace Mexico ensured safe transport. It also identified the most reliable and profitable route for the client.
CFM56-5B4/3s are powerful engines with many delicate parts. They are expensive to repair if damaged during shipping. “JAS Peru’s qualified professionals can safely and securely handle sensitive cargo that demands zero mistakes or delivery delays,” said Cecelia Galleno, Air Freight Manager for JAS Peru. “Our team continues to offer its expertise in providing transport services to customers that comply with target expectations.”
At JAS, we know people make the difference, so when a customer contacted us needing to move a specialized mining tool from India to Mexico via airfreight, team members across the world collaborated to design a tailor-made solution.
The oversized and overweight tool was too large for regular air freight, weighing over 3,600 Kgs and measuring more than 19.00 CBM, and needed to be moved quickly so that the customer could maintain business continuity. Without it, the customer risked needing to stop operations which could cost them thousands of dollars.
Realizing the time-sensitive nature of the project, JAS logistics engineering experts quickly worked to develop a unique multi-modal routing plan that allowed the Out Of Gauge (OOG) piece to be moved from India via Europe to Texas, USA, and to its final destination in Mexico in a very short period of time.
Thanks to the collaboration of our team members, the OOG tool was delivered to the customer in 6 days allowing for complete business continuity.
JAS is dedicated to our customers and often has the opportunity to help clients overcome challenges when immediate shipments are needed. We have a passion for finding solutions to these kinds of problems and acting as a reliable partner for our clients.
Congratulations to all of our team members, whose hard work and dedication made this happen. We are proud to continue to make a difference for our customers!
JAS prides itself on the ability to make a difference for their customers. So, when an industrial sector client reached out to them about moving a 650 CBM piece of machinery from the USA to Italy, JAS was able to quickly mobilize and find the most efficient solution, in the most challenging market.
The shipment was coordinated by the JAS Como branch in Italy in cooperation with the JAS Memphis branch in the USA.
Due to its nonstandard dimensions, the shipment required five Blue World Atlantic flights from Chicago to Frankfurt. Once the cargo arrived in Frankfurt, a total of 15 trucks were used for its final delivery to the client in Italy.
JAS offers weekly flight operations on the transatlantic trade lane with predictable lead times to and from the USA and Europe. These flights provide guaranteed capacity and control and each flight offers a hub solution so transfers can be arranged to and from multiple origin and destination points.
Thanks to the collaboration of both the JAS USA and JAS Italy teams, the customers' demands were successfully met and the shipment arrived safely and on time.
On May 13th, 2021 JAS Uruguay organized three air charters from Montevideo to Guatemala. JAS offers routine flight operations to many key trade-lanes utilizing the extensive JAS network of air gateways. These gateways along with the teams’ expertise in the air market, enabled JAS Uruguay to find and create the best possible combination of locations for the freight to travel through to reach its destination.
The project had to be coordinated very quickly, as the customer required the cargo to be delivered within 7 days of placing the request with JAS to find a solution. JAS immediately began working and coordinating with LATAM Cargo, the carrier of JAS’ choosing to handle this delivery. The LATAM Cargo operational team has worked with JAS in the past and has always provided the best accommodations possible. Strong relationships with carriers such as LATAM Cargo are a part of what gives the JAS team the ability to achieve seemingly impossible tasks, with accuracy and efficiency.
The charter was organized using a B767-300 freighter, which is the more fuel-efficient of the medium-widebody freighters available currently on the market. The aircraft departed the MVD airport in Uruguay at 22:30 HRS after having the loading operation supervised by the JAS Uruguay team. The JAS team coordinated the cargo drop off, documentation, receipt at the terminal, labeling & repacking, compliance checks, and loading procedures, all while providing the customer with real-time updates and tracking of the departures and arrivals via satellite follow-ups once the cargo was in the air. The air charter then arrived at the La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala on Friday the 14th at 06:02 HRS local time.
The last 2 charters included an average of 48 tons per flight. Each flight containing both hazardous and non-hazardous materials that required IATA DEG regulation labeling and repack work for the extra protection of the cargo. JAS can evaluate and handle all different types of HAZMAT materials in compliance with IATA regulations. JAS is also not limited to dangerous goods or general cargo and regularly handles perishable goods and pharma products that require temperature control.
With JAS' expertise in both air charters and hazardous goods transport, the customer knew they could turn to JAS to accomplish their goals. JAS’ team of experts can ensure the safe, efficient, and successful arrival of a variety of goods through the extensive JAS network. JAS knows that people make the difference, and JAS Uruguay's success is another testament to that slogan.
JAS Brazil completed five charter flights for an automotive customer, successfully delivering more than 200 tons of parts and equipment.
This 5-day operation from pickup to delivery involved many members of the JAS team, including air specialists and import and export specialists. To distribute the heavy load safely, the cargo was divided between three chartered aircraft: a Boeing 777, a Boeing 767-300F, and an Airbus A339-900. This expertise of the team ensured a safe and successful, on-time delivery for the happy JAS customer, once again demonstrating that at JAS, people make the difference.

Over the course of the past few years, JAS Chicago has been one of the fastest growing and top performing branches within the global JAS organization. Then, in March 2020, the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting disruptions threatened to derail the results and momentum: the culmination of many years of hard work. Business continuity, especially consistency in high levels of customer service, was always goal number one, but shifting an entire office staff to a virtual work environment overnight while ensuring the safety of essential warehouse personnel was an incredible challenge.
While the immediate challenge was met head on, and successfully so, by the entire JAS organization, anxiety regarding the lingering economic impacts of the pandemic was ever-present. The challenge was now how does JAS adapt to a global industry that had essentially changed overnight. Based on the feedback of customers, JAS invested immediately into an own-controlled flight network with additional adhoc charter space to inject much needed air capacity on key trade lanes. Due to its strategic geographic location, warehouse, and airport infrastructure, Chicago became the US hub for both the trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic flight operations.
In one month’s time, the uncertainty had begun to fade and the excitement about a new direction was taking hold. By the end of April 2020, the Chicago branch had transformed from a successful large local branch into a key strategic global gateway servicing the entire JAS network. This held its own challenges and many lessons were learned from issues that arose, but every challenge was met with hard work, determination, and an eye towards the future.
Over the following months, a continual drive to find efficiencies and improve the process and structure around the flight operations was a central focus. The JAS Chicago team knew that this would ultimately bring value to their customers while offering a differentiator in the market for future growth. Efficiencies in the warehouse were implemented in order to accommodate incredible volume growth in a limited space. Warehouse efficiencies resulted in faster turn-around times from flight arrival to final-mile delivery. High performing staff were given opportunities to grow into newly created gateway leadership roles, while no less than six other promotions within the branch were executed. New high-level talent was recruited and on-boarded that will one day grow into the future leaders within the Chicago branch and beyond.
In March of 2021, the annual USA Executive/Branch Manager meeting was held virtually. As a result of their incredible performance and impact to the JAS global network over the course of a most challenging year, it was announced that Chicago was named the JAS USA Branch of the Year for 2020. In the same meeting, it was announced that JAS Chicago would be expanding its footprint with plans to acquire additional warehouse space in the Chicago area in the very near future. These two announcements illustrate what has made JAS Chicago a true success story: utilizing the success of the past to invest in the future.
In the face of all challenges, thanks to the continued dedication and innovation of team members, JAS Chicago is able meet the needs of their customers. Especially over the last year, it is more apparent than ever, at JAS, people make the difference!
Another successful JAS charter flight has taken place. This challenging delivery was coordinated by JAS Brazil.
The transportation load included 80 cubic meters with more than 30 tons in total volume. There were 3 collection points from the various shippers in Poland. In additon to the usual complexity shipments such as these require, all the drivers at each and every border crossing were covid-19 tested up until the final drop off destination at Milan.
The flight departed from Milan headed to the Recife airport. From the pick ups in Poland to the arrival to Recife, within 120 hours, JAS organized the operation time attending our customer needs, so customer factory have not stopped. Our team was extremelly engaged to show that in JAS People Make The Difference in a daily basis, and that is why we have been getting good results. The whole process was closely followed up by JAS team, from fiscal documents check, fumigation of the pallets, cargo labeling, storage, ground transportation, aircraft loading and unloading.

The current pandemic has caused shipping disruptions across the globe.
With a 70% reduction in passenger flights since February 2020, the overall global air freight capacity is down about 25% from this time last year. Limited space on limited flights means frequent delays and interruptions of supply chains globally.
With the unpredictable availability of cargo space, how do we regain control of air freight to ensure service in such a critical time?
The traditional air freight model is no longer a realistic option, instead Flight Operations are the key for maintaining a reliable and uninterrupted supply chain by providing door-to-door control of the shipping process. With a Flight Operation, every step of the process - from the time the cargo is picked up to its final delivery - is meticulously managed by the service provider.
Shipments are processed through facilities controlled by the service provider, both at origin and destination. This system avoids the typical congestion at airport hubs, reduces overall transit time, and increases control.
The aircraft themselves offer unmatched flexibility to meet all cargo needs. Freighters have the capability to move normal and specialized cargo such as dangerous goods, oversized pieces, and shipments requiring refrigeration such as perishable and pharma.
Lastly, a prime network of delivery options carries the cargo to its ultimate destination.
In early August JAS introduced BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC, a weekend roundtrip Flight Operation between Chicago and Frankfurt, utilizing B 747 – 400 F Nose-Load for optimum loading capabilities. The BLUE WORLD ATLANTIC prime schedule is the best solution for supporting customers in the transatlantic air freight corridor!
If your business could benefit from a regular flight operation in the transatlantic corridor contact a local JAS representative for more information.
JAS Worldwide, together with their business partner Global Airlift Solutions, has managed another successful and urgent charter operation from the USA to China carrying important medical and Coronavirus outbreak relief goods.
The Boing 747-400 departed on Saturday Feb 21 2020 from the Chicago O' Hare International Airport and arrived at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Sunday Feb 23rd at 16:51 local time. The plane carried 100 tons of freight, of which 50% were relief goods such as facial masks and disinfectants.
“JAS is proud to be a able to provide a quick and reliable solution for our customers that want to support their employees and business partners during a difficult time”, said Senior Director for Air Freight for JAS USA,
Dirk Ravensteiner. Capacity is extremely tight and flight cancellations after the outbreak of the Coronavirus have reduced available cargo capacity from and to China by more than 40%. Making shipping solutions more complicated.
JAS Worldwide is now also offering unique Sea/Air solutions to/from China. JAS Worldwide hopes to ensure that this is a suitable and alternative solution for shipments to cities in the Northern & Central part of China like Qingdao, Beijing, Tianjin & Dalian, Shanghai and Ningbo.
